Here are three baskets setting up so I can attach handles. After reading about this tip, I tried waxing the joints, and, although not foolproof, I think it helped keep the cracking to a minimum. These are made with Zella Stone and were loaded in the bisque earlier this evening.
Even though a gas firing is out, I have almost enough work for a cone 6 electric before Bele Chere. I may not be able to help myself.
